Krotoa, a bright and feisty 11-year old girl is removed from her close-knit Khoi tribe to serve her uncle’s trading partner, Jan van Riebeeck. She grows into an enterprising young woman who masters the Dutch language and culture so well that she rises to become an influential interpreter for Van Riebeeck. Krotoa then becomes rejected by her own Khoi
people and destroyed by the Dutch when she tries to find the middle way between the two cultures. At the end
of the film, Roberta Durrant will speak to Christopher Hope about the film.
